Ensure the ram voltages and timings are set properly.

Then just start bumping up the multiplier. Use Intel Burn Test (IntelBurnTest - The new stress-testing program) to make sure the CPU is stable.

Just don't jump the multiplier up to much at a time.. Oh and unless you have an aftermarket cooler don't bother at all.

Smile Overclocking help

What they said. If you're still having trouble, go to the ROG site, it might give you some insight.

I don't know if Gigabyte has a help forum, you could try that. Try to google it as well.

Unless you're going for 5 Ghz, as mentioned the multiplier and bclk r the 1st things to play with.


Hope we helped!.
